We poured four whiskies from three Tennessee distilleries at our Tuesday tasting last eve: George Dickel No. 8 (80 proof), George Dickel No. 12 (90 proof), Prichard’s (80 proof), and Jack Daniels Old No. 7 (80 proof).
No huge surprises with these selections: plenty of sweetness and oak wood, cherry, slight citrus, and honey corn. Few high floral notes on any of these whiskies. The Dickel No. 12 at 90 proof had good depth and complexity.
Interesting night. Fun to try Jack Daniels after so many weeks of whiskies from all over the country. Millions and millions of cases come out of Lynchburg every year and Jack stays pretty much Jack: the most popular whiskey in the USA…maybe the world?
